Grimes Says She and Elon Musk Have Slightly Changed Their Newborn Son's Name

Elon Musk and Grimes have apparently made a slight change to their newborn son's unconventional name.

Earlier this month, the Tesla CEO, 48, and the singer, 32, left their fans perplexed when they revealed that they named their newborn son X Æ A-12.

But in an Instagram post on Sunday, Grimes was asked by a fan if she had changed her son's name, given that the moniker reportedly won't be accepted by the state of California.

Grimes confirmed so writing back to the fan, "X Æ A-Xii," although she did not give clarification on the reason for the name change.

When another follower wrote to Grimes, "Nice! Just removed the numbers to confirm to California law," she responded, "Roman numerals. Looks better tbh."

However, Musk offered up a different pronunciation during a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast. While he revealed that Grimes was actually the one who "mostly came up with the name," Musk said that X is spoken "like the letter" while "the 'Æ' is pronounced like 'ash.' "

During the show, Musk also proudly proclaimed that the A-12 part of his son's name was his idea, saying that he wanted to pay homage to the Lockheed A-12.

"A-12 was my contribution," he said. "The Archangel-12, the precursor to the SR-71, the coolest plane ever."

This is the first child for Grimes, while Musk has five sons from a previous marriage. His first son, Nevada, died tragically of SIDS at 10 weeks old in 2002.
